Birth of a poem…!

On a leisurely indulgence,
An innocuous volition creep,
And stimulate my senses.,
I remained agog for a while!

Myriad thoughts jostle in,
Refraining, refreshing,reforming
With neither rest, nor respite.,
I remained stoic for a while!

My sigh travels across a mile,
Towards the destination afar,
Perhaps with a yearn so dear.,
I remained restive for a while!

Midst of an intense silence,
I embrace my desire slyly,
Sway away my fears aside.,
I remained bold for a while!

In that moment of oblivion,
An artistry realm wide opened,
Onto a surface invisible,
I remained invincible for a while!

My heart sings,my soul dances,
When my fingers merged the flow,
Of unsaid words to the obvious.
I remained ecstatic for a while..!!
